I read something in my Spark mail yesterday about only regretting NOT doing something. Ain't that the truth?!
I wrote my plan down, so here I am pedaling, just like I promised myself. But it was a ridiculous debate that lasted about an hour! It wasn't until I spoke the words aloud to my husband ("I was going to get up and exercise, but I guess I'm not") that I realized I had no excuse. I don't know what a bootstrap is, but imagine me pulling myself up by them, because that's what I did!
It's so much easier to fall into bad habits. I have old habits that were good. What about those? You gotta work at keeping those in the repertoire. I keep wondering when that fire that got me through the first 30 pounds is going to reignite. But it's folly to wait for it to happen. The reason it happened in the first place was all the little successes of consistent good choices. If you aren't making them, it's going to be difficult to see the way forward. And that, my friends, is why I'm pedaling this morning.
